Rail Bear Bonnet - English

‚ā¨5
Baby Bear Garter Bonnet is a beginner-friendly hat with cute little bear ears worked back and forth in garter stitch. You start working the ribbed face band before shaping the top crown, ears and the back crown with simple increases and decreases. Next, you work the ties and back neckband in garter stitch before finishing the bonnet by seaming up the ears and back crown.
